Anybody own one? There's one for sale locally, and it's cheap. What styles are it good for? How would you describe the tone? What's it's strongest point?

Thanks.

EDIT: What's the usual going price on it?

It's Ampeg's stab at a Mesa Mark style amp.

So it follows the basic Mesa combo setup, which is 60 watts all-tube (6L6), single 12" speaker, and three channels. They're clean, rhythm (dirty) and lead or ultra, which is a more middy gain channel with some punch.

They also came in a head version. Good amps, I was looking at one a few months ago. Point-to-point wired too, I believe.

They're good for Santana-type smooth distortion, Clapton-esque tones all they way up to JCM800 territory. The solid state counterparts to these amps have some br00t4l distortion, if you're interested.

How much is it going for?

Sorry for double post, but the thing's built like a god-damned tank. 60-70 pounds for the single speaker combo.......
